Much like how everyone knows The Avengers is a great movie, Monopoly money isn't accepted at McDonald's, and rock beats scissors, everyone knows the New York Yankees have some issues with runners in scoring position.

The Yankees are fighting to stay out of the cellar in the AL East.  Luckily for them, no one's run away with the division as of yet.  Not helping their case is their inability to score runs, especially with runners in scoring positions.
